This should be done for the duration of the healing time to ensure that your piercing looks great in the long term.
For Oral: Use oral aftercare spray to wash internally three times per day after food. Also use external aftercare spray to clean the outside of the piercing three times per day.

I HAVE A BUMP!
Make sure you’re following the aftercare instructions your piercer gave you.
Some redness and swelling is expected for certain piercings as your piercer would have explained.
If the piercing has any visible signs of pus or colour or major painful swelling, it may be worth heading straight to the doctor.
If you’re just not sure, feel free to call or go into your local Punktured store and have it assessed.
Even if you’ve been pierced somewhere else, we’re happy to help.
